Its one half stop difference from 1.8 to 2.8.

So 1.4, 2.0, 2.8, 4.0, 5.6, 8. are full stops.

Hmmm, if it's a full stop from 2.0 to 2.8, mustn't it be a bit more than a full stop from 1.8 to 2.8?

I have them both and I use them both - a lot. I would say for over all use, it would have to be the 20mm. Probably the most versatile lens for m4/3. But for portrait, then it's the 45. I also have the 14, but hardly ever use it.

Ditto, except I use my 14 a bit more than that. If I could only have one prime, it would be the 20.
